Israel Air Force helicopter gunships attacked a smuggling tunnel in the central Gaza Strip overnight Tuesday.

The tunnel was used by terrorists to enter Israeli territory and carry out terror attacks, according to the IDF Spokesman.

The strike was in response to earlier rocket and mortar fire at the Eshkol regional council, the IDF added.

The IDF said it will not tolerate attacks against its civilian population and that it views the Hamas terror group responsible for disrupting peace in the South.
